Gomez Addams: Actor to play 50s. A man in his prime, of
Spanish descent and a wild Iberian passion. Adores his family. Hes very much
about what it means to be an Addams. His desire for Morticia is undimmed after
20 years of marriage. Must have great comedic timing, strong tenor voice and
the moves for the tango!
Morticia Addams: Actor to play 40 - 50s. Holds the balance
of power in the family; often seems like the only emotionally mature member of
the clan. Beautiful and aristocratic, the real head of the family , always sees
the best in people. Must be a great dancer who is funny and sings well,
Uncle Fester: Actor to play 40s 50s. The narrator of the
piece, Fester is child-like, hugely enthusiastic and totally incorrigible. A vaudevillian,
needs strong comedy and tenor voice.
Wednesday Addams: Actor to play age 17. Romantic lead, a
younger version of Morticia. Needs a great pop/rock style singing voice and a
witty, DRY sense of humor.
Grandmama: Actor to play 102! Well take younger though.
Ancient. Good-natured, easily led. Very active for her age. Character singer
with strong humor.
Pugsley Addams: Actor to play age 10-12. Plump, adorable and
FUNNY....a smaller version of Gomez. His singing voice needs to be big and
Lurch: Actor, ageless. A man of very, very few words, often
spoken at half speed. Most of what he utters is long, plaintive groans, some
tinged with irony or exasperation. Lurch sees everything, knows everything that
goes on under the roof of The Addams Family manse. Must have a TRUE low bass
Colonel Mal Beinecke: Actor to play 45 50. Military man, a
man who must be obeyed, with little patience for his wife and son. High
Alice Beinecke: Actor to play early 40s. She truly loves her
husband and loves that he takes charge; so she makes no decisions. Since he has
become more distant, she has refocused her love to her only son, Lucas. Must be
very funny and sing well - soprano/belter
Lucas Beinecke: Actor to play 19. A writer, he has conflicts
with his father's closed-minded ways. Fell in love with Wednesday at first
sight. Lucas feels good when everybody's happy. Needs to be a great pop/rock
